Niacinamide (B-3) 500mg 100 Caps
Niacinamide and Niacin are two different forms of vitamin B-3, as niacinamide does not cause a niacin flush. Niacinamide (B-3) is an essential member of the B-vitamin family.

One of the main benefits of niacinamide is the relief of arthritis. Studies have shown that people who take it as a supplement can show a marked reduction in symptoms of the disease. For some, it may be a useful alternative to taking nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other pain-relieving drugs.

Improvement of asthma symptoms is another of the possible benefits of niacinamide. Taking it has been shown to decrease both mast cell degranulation and histamine release, which can exacerbate the condition. Therefore, asthmatics may want to try adding the supplement to their diet.

Diabetics may also benefit from taking niacinamide. It is thought to help improve insulin production and also to decrease insulin insensitivity. Those who are prone to the early onset of type I diabetes may also be less likely to develop it if they take niacinamide.

Another of the benefits of niacinamide is its use in reducing psychological distress. People who are stressed, anxious, or depressed may be able to reduce these feelings by taking a supplement, particularly if they are the result of a deficiency of the nutrient. Niacinamide has also been shown to help insomniacs sleep better.

Niacinamide is well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This can be of particular benefit to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's patients, especially early in the diseases, as it helps reduce inflammation in the brain that can contribute to these conditions. it is also beneficial in treating skin conditions such as acne and rosacea.
